Xfire officials have announced that the online gaming communication and community platform has surpassed over seven million registered users, and that the service now supports over 800 popular PC titles worldwide. The announcement follows the release of Xfire's monthly statistics report in April, which indicated a marked increase in World of Warcraft play, but also the Western releases of a number of Korean free-to-play MMOs like Maple Story. Launched in 2004, the ad-supported Xfire application Xfire is free to use, and offers users a variety of tools including friend tracking, a one-click option to join friends’ games, a server browser, in-game messaging, peer-to-peer file downloading, game statistics, automated player profiles, and voice chat. “Our seven million users constitute a very active community that spent over 14,300 man-years on Xfire in the month of March alone,” said Mike Cassidy, CEO of Xfire, Inc. “In addition to helping gamers play online with their friends, Xfire also offers a slew of innovative features such as in-game messaging in over 500 games, automated gameplay statistics, free voice chat, and live online gaming events.”
